Lincoln Chafee.</p> Tue, 26 Nov 2013 18:19:28 +0000 Scott MacKay 25381 at http://ripr.org Division of Taxation Hands Out Historic Tax Credits http://ripr.org/post/division-taxation-hands-out-historic-tax-credits <p>The Rhode Island Division of Taxation held a drawing Tuesday to award just $35 million in state historic tax credits.&nbsp; The General Assembly voted earlier this year to reopen the historic tax credit program.</p><p></p><p></p><p>The Division of Taxation used a drawing to pick who would get the tax credits since demand outstripped supply.
